Summary of MF Ghost

The series takes place in the 2020s, when self-driving electric cars replaced combustion cars. However, in Japan there is a large organization called MFG, founded by Ryosuke Takahashi (from the Initial D-series), that runs street races using internal combustion engine cars. A new rookie, Kanata Livington, going under the pseudonym Kanata Katagiri, is a 19-year-old Japanese-British boy who drives a Toyota 86 and defeats top European cars like the Lamborghini, the Huracan Performante, the Ferrari 488 GTB, the Lotus Exige, the Alfa Romeo 4C, the Lexus LC500 and the Porsche 911 Carrera. Kanata was trained by legendary rally and downhill racer Takumi Fujiwara (star of the Initial D series) at the British Royal Donington Racing School and is Formula 4 World Champion. He has only one reason: to find his lost father.
